If you put a lot of coats on it won't tear unless someone tries to tear it.

This is what I might be going for:


And this is now:


It's similar to "chicagobulls" car, but my splitter is painted, so the vinyl or plasti-dipped part will make the lower grill look bigger, kinda like the ZL1 lower grill.

Plasti dip is so cheap that I think I will try it thus weekend. I might try to top it with Plasti dip glossifier to give it little shine. Both are at Walmart for $6/can.

Couple of reasons. One, I want the black around the whole lower grille along the lines. Two, got a couple of small nicks in the vinyl from road debris. I think dip would hold up better.

Down low you want dip if you like the look....

Dip can be fixed - it also self heals a bit.....get some of their solvent and fix things:

Wouldn't regular automotive paint hold up even better?

That looks fantastic... has anyone ever used dip for the middle of the fascia (the portion under the head lights) like latino has done with the vinyl?
